Rick Ross assassination attempt might have links to Gangster Disciples
Jan-30-2013 392 0


There is no shortage of suspects in Monday's assassination attempt on well-known rap star Rick Ross. And they all lead back to Chicago.

Ross survived a shooting ambush in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Monday morning.

The worst kept secret in the rap world has been a dispute between Ross and the Chicago-based Gangster Disciples. Ross was apparently targeted by gang leaders after he used some of their signs, symbols and logos without paying them the required fees.

Over the past few months, gang members have posted video death threats against the rapper on YouTube. Monday, a hit squad opened fire on Ross in South Florida.

There was a spray of gunfire just before daybreak on the silver Rolls Royce being driven by rapper Rick Ross, stage name for William L. Roberts.

"Nine or 10 shots, rapid fire," said a witness. "AK-47 or pretty large rifle, it was definitely a rifle."

Fort Lauderdale police tell the I-Team that they cannot confirm nor dismiss whether the allege threats to the rap star are legitimate but that detectives are examining the forensic evidence.

Despite all the bullets, rapper Ross, celebrating his 37th birthday Monday, was not hurt and neither was his girlfriend in the car, which crashed into an apartment.

Videos claiming to have been posted by Gangster Disciple members in cities across the U.S. all say that the rapper needs to pay the gang or he will be killed.

Authorities in South Florida say the motive for the attack is unclear.

A judge has revoked Chris Brown's probation but allowed him to remain free for now after the R&B singer traveled without approval for a concert and failed to complete community service on time.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge James R. Brandlin allowed Brown to remain free at least until a March 20 hearing when the judge will receive an update from probation officials.

Brown was ordered by probation officials in December not to leave Los Angeles County without permission.

The Grammy-winning singer performed in San Jose in Northern California recently without obtaining permission to travel. Five people were shot while Brown was on stage.

Attorney Mark Geragos told Brandlin that his office incorrectly advised Brown he didn't need permission to travel for the show.

Brown was supposed to complete 1,000 hours of community labor by the end of January, but he still has roughly 200 hours to complete.

Andraé Crouch, a gospel musician who bridged the worlds of church and mainstream music for more than 50 years, died Thursday afternoon. The 72-year-old singer, songwriter and choir director had been hospitalized since Saturday at Northridge Hospital Medical Center in the Los Angeles area after suffering a heart attack.

Crouch, sometimes called "the father of modern gospel music," led the choirs that sang on such hits as Michael Jackson's Man in the Mirror and Madonna's Like a Prayer. As a songwriter, he wrote several gospel favorites, most notably The Blood Will Never Lose Its Power, My Tribute (To God Be the Glory) and Soon and Very Soon, a song sung at Jackson's public memorial service.

A San Francisco native who grew up in the Church of God in Christ, Crouch wrote his first gospel tune at age 14. By 1960, he had formed the Church of God in Christ Singers, a group that featured Billy Preston on keyboards.

He started another group, Andraé Crouch & the Disciples, in 1965, eventually signing to a contemporary Christian label, Light Records. Crouch brought a contemporary pop and R&B melodic sensibility to gospel, making him uniquely suited to appeal to both black and white audiences during the early days of the countercultural "Jesus movement" and also bringing him attention beyond the church.

Elvis Presley recorded Crouch's I've Got Confidence for his 1972 gospel album He Touched Me, and Paul Simon recorded his Jesus Is the Answer on 1974's Paul Simon in Concert: Live Rhymin'. Crouch also became the go-to vocal arranger for Los Angeles recording sessions that needed a gospel sound, working not only with Jackson and Madonna but also Elton John, Quincy Jones, The Commodores, Diana Ross and Ringo Starr.

Crouch's gospel albums often featured guests from the R&B and jazz worlds, including Stevie Wonder, El DeBarge, Wilton Felder and Earth, Wind & Fire's Philip Bailey. Chaka Khan, Sheila E. and vocal group Take 6 appeared on his most recent album, 2011's The Journey.

His recordings brought him seven Grammys, and Crouch also received an Academy Award nomination for his arranging work on the 1985 film The Color Purple.

Throughout his life, Crouch struggled with dyslexia, sometimes memorizing words by the shapes of their combination of letters. He often drew simple pictures to help him comprehend words and write songs.

Crouch's sister, Sandra Crouch, served as his spokeswoman, and the siblings were pastors at the New Christ Memorial Church in San Fernando, Calif., carrying on a work begun by their parents.

Crouch survived multiple bouts with cancer and also suffered from diabetes. In early December, Crouch was hospitalized with pneumonia and congestive heart failure, forcing the cancelation of his Let the Church Say Amen Celebration tour, which had been scheduled to begin Dec. 6 in Philadelphia. He was re-admitted to the hospital Saturday with what his sister characterized in a statement as "serious health complications."

Rapper Rick Ross got a tattoo of his beloved Miami Heat on his face.

The heavily inked 38-year-old rapper, who was rasied in Carol City, near Miami, got the team's flaming basketball logo inked on his right temple at Unroyal Ink in New Jersey, Vibe reports.

The new tat was one of several the prison-guard-turned-rap-mogul got at the Farmingdale shop earlier this week.

Another was a small interlocking "DC," which is the logo for his friend and fellow rapper Meek Mill's record company, Dreamchasers.

Artists at Unroyal Ink promoted the session with photos on the shop's Instagram page Sunday showing a shirtless Ross reclining with a blunt-like smoke.

"Tattooing the Hood Billionaire," the caption said.

As expected, Ross is a giant Heat fan.

According to Vibe, he bet 10,000 that his team would finish the season with a better record than the Cleveland Cavaliers, where former Heat star LeBron James now plays.

"Cosby Show" alum Phylicia Rashad has spoken out for the first time about the sexual assault scandal involving embattled comedian Bill Cosby.

"Forget these women," Rashad told Showbiz 411's Roger Friedman in a story published online Tuesday night. "What you're seeing is the destruction of a legacy. And I think it's orchestrated. I don't know why or who's doing it, but it's the legacy. And it's a legacy that is so important to the culture."

In his report, Friedman said he spoke with Rashad hours earlier at New York's Metropolitan Club during a Paramount Pictures luncheon for the movie "Selma."

When asked about the scandal, Rashad initially declined to comment, saying, "I don't want to become part of the public debate."

When asked how she felt about Cosby, Rashad reportedly said, "I love him." The Tony Award winner added that she had known the comedian for years and has never seen the behavior alleged by his accusers.

Rashad also dismissed claims by former supermodels Beverly Johnson and Janice Dickinson. "Oh, please," she said about the two women who have accused Cosby of inappropriate behavior.

"Someone is determined to keep Bill Cosby off TV," Rashad added, alluding to a conspiracy against the television icon. "And it's worked. All his contracts have been canceled."

She also said the scandal has ultimately sullied the legacy of "The Cosby Show," which aired on NBC from 1984 to 1992. The series centered on the upper-class Huxtable family and defied stereotypes about African-Americans.

"This show represented America to the outside world," Rashad said. "This was the American family. And now you're seeing it being destroyed. Why?"

Cosby, 77, hasn't been charged with any crimes stemming from the allegations.

But the fallout prompted the cancellation of a Netflix special, caused NBC to drop a comedy series that was in the works, and has led to several of his stand-up comedy shows being canceled. TV Land also pulled repeats of "The Cosby Show" amid the allegations.

In a statement previously issued to TheWrap, Cosby attorney Martin Singer denounced the star's accusers: "The new, never-before-heard claims from women who have come forward in the past two weeks with unsubstantiated, fantastical stories about things they say occurred 30, 40, or even 50 years ago have escalated far past the point of absurdity."

Protesters are criticizing Oprah Winfrey for saying that demonstrations over the police treatment of African-Americans have lacked leadership.

In a video posted Thursday on People's website, Winfrey praised Selma for depicting the thoughtfulness and strategy used by Martin Luther King. She feels this is lacking in recent protests focused on grand juries deciding not to indict the police officer who killed teen Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., and the one who killed Eric Garner in a choke hold.

"I think it's wonderful to march and to protest, and it's wonderful to see all across the country, people doing it, but what I'm looking for is some kind of leadership to come out of this to say, 'This is what we want. This is what has to change, and these are the steps that we need to take to make these changes, and this is what we're willing to do to get it,' " Winfrey said.

"I think what can be gleaned from our film is to take note of the strategic, peaceful intention required when you want real change," added Winfrey, who co-stars in and produced the film about the 1965 civil rights protests.

Responses to Winfrey's comments have emerged on Twitter. "If @oprah doesn't see 'leadership' in Ferguson, it's cuz she's not really looking," wrote one Twitter user, according to People. "It's grass-roots she has to do work to see the teams."

Another Twitter user wrote: "Once again a Black 'celebrity' shows just how out of touch they are. So, while @oprah searches for an outdated leadership model, #weworkin." This tweet was first cited by the Washington Post.

I'ma say it: @Oprah has romanticized the CR movement and it's leaders and sees "SELMA" as a blueprint for us now. This is about ticket sales

Dish Nation host Porsha Williams was briefly detained today in Atlanta, GA. She was accused of speeding and driving with a suspended license. She has given this statement exclusively to Dish Nation, which should clear up any confusion and dispel any rumors.

I was headed to visit my grandfather who is very ill with cancer in the hospital, and I was pulled over. I was wrong for speeding absolutely and apologize for putting anyone at risk. I tried to explain the situation to the officer and show him that all my paperwork was in order, but he refused. Handcuffs are not comfortable or a good look for anyone. I was released, I have my license, my car, and my freedom.

The taxman gave Solange Knowles a wedding gift — the songstress, 28, was slapped with a $55,000 tax lien from the state of California.

Solange reportedly didn’t pay taxes in the state from 2010 to 2012, TMZ reports.

The website claims she was notified of the delinquent payments just three days after tying the knot with longtime boyfriend Alan Ferguson in New Orleans in mid-November.

But Solange, who appears to be unaware of the tax lien, responded to the news via Twitter on Sunday.

Chris Rock and his wife Malaak Compton-Rock have split after 19 years of marriage. The news was announced in a statement she released on Sunday, Dec. 28, followed by a statement from Rock’s lawyer confirming he has filed for divorce.

“After much contemplation and 19 years of marriage, Chris and I have decided to go our separate ways,” says Compton-Rock. “Being fortunate enough to lead a life of service by working with those most vulnerable makes me well aware of life’s blessings, even when faced with difficulties.”

Comtpon-Rock continues, “While recognizing that this is a significant change, my children remain at the center of my life and their well-being is my top priority. It is in this spirit that I sincerely ask that their privacy and the privacy of our family be respected during this transition in our lives.”

Rock’s lawyer Robert S. Cohen says, “Chris Rock has filed for divorce from his wife, Malaak, This is a personal matter and Chris requests privacy as he and Malaak work through this process and focus on their family.”

Rock and Compton-Rock, the founder of the non-profit styleWorks, wed in November 1996, after meeting two years prior. They have two daughters together. Lola was born in 2002 and Zahra was born in 2004. As Gossip Cop reported, the actor recently spoke about raising his girls on “The Tonight Show,” where he amusingly gave Jimmy Fallon parenting advice.

Rock was previously rumored to be divorcing Compton-Rock back in 2006 and 2007. They later said the reports were false in a joint statement, in which they called the allegations “untrue rumors and lies.” “We remain, as always, very happy and committed to our marriage and the beautiful family that we have built,” the coupple said at the time.

Rock has spent the last few weeks on media rounds for his new film "Top Five." He wrote and directed the movie, in which he also stars.
